Borussia Dortmund have confirmed that Christian Pulisic has signed for Chelsea ‘with immediate effect’.
As per the terms of the agreement, the 20-year-old USA international will remain on loan at the Bundesliga club for the remainder of the current season before making his big switch to the Stamford Bridge.
Der BVB hat sich mit dem FC Chelsea auf einen Transfer von Christian #Pulisic mit sofortiger Wirkung geeinigt, Chelsea wiederum leiht den 20-Jährigen bis zum Saisonende an den BVB aus.

Dortmund have stated that the transfer fee in question is a hefty €64million and that they won’t be made to pay a penny to ‘rent’ Pulisic for the latter half of the campaign.
That’s top dollar for a player whose contract is due to expire in 18 months, but we guess that doesn’t really matter when you’re being bank-rolled by an oligarch.
